The official M4A4 Description states:

More accurate but less damaging than its AK-47 counterpart, the M4A4 is the full-auto assault rifle of choice for CTs.

The CS GO rifle is a Counter-Terrorist rifle featured exclusively in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, replacing the previous Maverick M4A1 Carbine. It has the M4A1-S as its alternative load out.

It has high accuracy and moderate recoil, especially when fired in bursts. However, spraying bullets is not always recommended, unless you’re in close proximity with the enemy.

At longer ranges, burst fire, unless an opponent has a sniper rifle, like the AWP. Retreating when an experienced sniper has spotted you is more recommended than recklessly charging in an open area.

In medium and close ranges, you can spray bullets at the torso or stomach. Be sure that you are accustomed to the recoil however.

Although headshots from the CS GO rifle are not always lethal, you can aim for the head at close ranges. A headshot might kill if an opponent is already hurt, or at least deliver heavy damage.

Experienced players with AK-47 rifles may outgun its counterpart’s users at mid to long ranges. To counter this, try to burst-fire as the Counter Terrorists’ Rifle has lower recoil or find a way to gain close proximity due to higher rate of fire of the weapon.

This rifle can easily counter assailants armed with higher recoil and/or lower rate of fire weapons, especially if opponents have trouble controlling their weapon at close ranges. Examples include the AK-47 and the SG 553.
